Description: The Olive Tree may be in Chester, nestled in the sumptuous womb of the Green Bough Hotel, a luxury Victorian townhouse hotel, but for all the world it can feel like you've been transported to Tuscany. Rich Italian wallpaper and beautiful Italianate oil paintings grace the walls. Happily, you can take your time absorbing the space - a table is yours once seated. Savoy-trained chef/patron Philip Martin brings together an eclectic mix of aromas and flavours in an extensive, weekly-changing menu of innovative dishes epitomised by assiette of seafood - a delightful offering of red mullet, brill and king scallops; and Mediterranean vegetables with goats' cheese and parmesan crust. On cold evenings, it's nice to sit nibbling canap��s by the smouldering 17th century lounge fireplace. Attentive service.

A very intimate restaurant with excellent service, but not at all stiff. I chose Belly Pork for a starter and was amazed that it could taste that good! My husband loved his Lamb as a main course and my choice of guineafowl didn't let me down. Imaginative Intermediates were beautifully served. We've finished our meal choosing from the interesting cheese board. One thing only left me puzzled: there MUST be a better way to stop bowl on plates sliding about than to use paper doylies?!
